Hi, I have been asked to make a 21st birthday party with strawberry and vanilla flavours... Can I use fresh strawberries and whipped cream as a filling? Do the strawberries go yucky and soggy quickly? I read one recipe where it included gelatin on the strawberries...Would this be the way to go???
The cake will only be covered in buttercream, not fondant, so I will be able to store it in the fridge...

You can use strawberry glazed from the store and throw in those strawberrys. It will taste really good.

I have layered fresh strawberries in many cakes. I never used a gelatin I layered them in with buttercream, and stored in the fridge. Strawberries were fine because air did not get to them they were I guess you could say sealed. I made my layers the night before and never had a problem with them being soggy. Hope this helps.

Where I come form we always make cakes with fruit and whipped cream, no gelatin. Don't worry it will be ok.
